The Color Yellow

Alice Walker has to be considered the anti-semite of the day.   She doesn't want Alicia Keys to perform in Israel, because, she told her,  "A cultural boycott of Israel and Israeli institutions (not individuals) is the only option left to artists who cannot bear the unconscionable harm Israel inflicts every day on the people of Palestine, whose major 'crime' is that they exist in their own land, land that Israel wants to control as its own. This is actually a wonderful opportunity for you to learn about something sorrowful, and amazing: that our government (Obama in particular) supports a system that is cruel, unjust, and unbelievably evil."  I wonder what her Jewish ex-husband thinks of this.
